Tragedy in the Middle East: Massive Earthquakes Devastate Turkey and Syria

A row of lit candlesThe earthquakes that recently struck Turkey and Syria have caused widespread destruction and loss of life. Reports now indicate that over 7,400 people have died, and many more have been injured or are missing. The initial earthquake was one of the strongest to hit the region in a century and was felt as far away as Lebanon and Israel.

We are deeply saddened by this tragedy and extend our sincere condolences to all those affected by the disaster. Our thoughts are with our AESES members who may have family and friends in the region during this difficult time. The loss of life and destruction is heartbreaking, and we hope for a swift and thorough response from the authorities and rescue organizations to support those in need on site.

In solidarity,

Chris McCann
AESES President
